And you pretty much answered your own question down there. I've always heard that Canberra is boring. So it killed my interest in visiting it.
Yeah I guess so. Visitors usually see more than residents, that's true of no matter where you go.

Yes, I went to DC for the first time this summer. We wanted to take our son to see the museums and the White House (not a tour), and he seemed to enjoy himself. We didn't get to see a whole lot, since he's only 5, but he loved the museums. I'd love to go back there and spend several days exploring everything; maybe when he's older!

I lived near our capital Washington D.C. a few times over the years and drove through on several trips over the years. I was fortunate to have visited or passed through a few capitals of other countries.

I have lived or worked in the capitals of the 3 countries where I have lived for significant time

India = New Delhi. I love wandering the narrow alleys of Old Delhi and the place near India Gate. In winter, Delhi is wonderful. In summer heat, forget it.

U.K = London. One of the great cities for visitors

USA = Washington, DC. A ton of things to do and most of it free. My BIL now lives there so I visit it often.

Been to the capitals of New Zealand and Croatia, but not Australia because I don't know what you can do in Canberra.

I have been too many times because my hometown is 50km away, I don't even remember the first one, but my first memoir comes to my mind was at Christmas maybe in 1993 o 1994, I went to Madrid with my family and my friends from childhood and her family too in a big van, we visited too many Christmas stores with lots of toys.
